In this article, I will give you 6 Reasons A Beginning Marketer Should Start With Affiliate Marketing.
If you are wanting to start an online business but you don't know where to start, I think you should really give affiliate marketing a try. The reason I would start with this technique is that it's by far the easiest to get started with and has just about no upfront cost at all.
So let's take a look at 6 Reasons A Beginning Marketer Should Start With Affiliate Marketing.
1. MANY OUT THERE TO CHOOSE FROM
Just about all the companies out there have affiliate programs you can join. And not just small companies but the really BIG COMPANIES as well. Such as Walmart, Bestbuy, Amazon, JVZoo, Warrior Plus, eBay, and tons of others. All you have to do is do a Google Search with "the company name" and put affiliate program behind it like this (example. Walmart Affiliate Program)
2. FREE TO JOIN
Affiliate programs pay you to promote their products and it's free to join them, so no upfront cost for you. Now depending on the company will depend on how much commission you will make. As an example, Walmart pays 8% commissions. And most vendors on JVZoo will pay a 50% -100% commissions depending on the vendor and product. While Amazon typically pays 4-8.5% depending on your seller rank.
3. NO PRODUCTS TO MAKE
When you do affiliate marketing you don't have to worry about creating a product because you are simply promoting someone else's product. This is a no-brainer and you don't have to have any skills in creating products from scratch. All of the hard work such as building a website, create awesome graphics for a product, paying someone to write the copy for the sales page are all already done for you. All you need to do is drive people to the page.
4. NO PRODUCTS TO SHIP
When you do affiliate marketing you will never have to struggle with having to ship a product because the vendor takes care of all of this. And it doesn't matter if it's a digital product or a physical product. The vendor takes care of all the hard work for you. All you do is get people to have a look at their products and if they buy you get paid and they ship or deliver the digital products.
5. MANY PLACES TO PROMOTE
There are unlimited ways you can promote these affiliate products. You can use email, Facebook, YouTube, Forums (read their rules and regulations before posting), Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. Even if you are a beginner you can make some good passive income. To me, the easiest way to make affiliate sales though is to use your emails list. If you don't have one, start building one now. Build a good relationship with your list and once they trust you and you send them affiliate promotions and they like the offer they will buy from you.
6. NO SUPPORT CUSTOMER
Another great thing is you don't have to handle customer support. Everything is done for you.
Well, that about wraps up the 6 Reasons A Beginning Marketer Should Start With Affiliate Marketing. I hope now you can see why this is one of the easiest business to start making money online.
